    Turbo Timer Install Help

    I am trying to hook up a HKS turbo timer. I bought the harness and everything but I dont know where the speed sensor wire or the rpm signal wire go. It is going on a 2004 sti. Any help would be greatly appreciated because all of my instructions are in an asian language. Thanks

    You don't need a turbo timer. The STi's turbo will cool itself. If you bought it and you can return it, do it. You wasted your money. If you're paranoid about it, just sit in your car and let it run at idle for an additional minute or two....

    look around for a pin diagram of the ecu and see what one is the MPH/spedometer wire i think. Might as well look for the RPM one while u are down there too i guess.

    Step 1 - Fold instructions back to oem configuration
    Step 2 - Return Turbo Timer, instructions, wiring, and hardware to its box.
    Step 3 - Reseal box.
    Step 4 - Find receipt.
    Step 5 - Drive to retailer, return Turbo Timer.*

    *If step 5 fails due to opening the package, return home, log onto www.ebay.com and attempt to sell the Turbo Timer.

    Step 6 - Use returned/payment from ebay to purchase something useful.

    No need to be rude.. I was asking for suggestions not objections. The turbo timer preforms other functions that Im using other than the timer itself.

    Check out http://www.swankmonkey.com/subaru/wrx/2002/turbotimer/ Hope that helps. Yeah the turbo timer is kind of a waste of a mod, but I'm kinda glad I got it still. Impresses the chicks and people go nuts when I'm at the gas station about to fill up...
